The only thing more fun than getting the kids out of the house for eight hours a day is dressing them up in gear that you both love — stuff that looks great, feels great, and that they won’t wrestle you to avoid putting on.

Rockets of Awesome fits the bill. Super-fun, ultra-soft, eye-catching clothing that lets kids stay comfortable while they’re having fun. Founded by a mom — rockstar entrepreneur Rachel Blumenthal — everything is designed in-house, and only available directly from their site. There are dress-up pieces like tulle skirts and sequin jackets, and dress-downs like non-denim denim and cozy knits. Basically, everything goes with anything, and still looks amazing.

And with almost everything in the $20-$50 range, it’s a perfect price point. (And you won’t be too pissed when they spill their juice boxes all over themselves.) Plus, Scary Mommies can get 20% OFF with the code SCARYMOMMY, so it’s an even better deal on these high-quality faves:

RAINBOW COMFY CREW

This is the signature comfy crew you have to feel to believe. It’s so soft they’ll fight you because they don’t want to take it off, instead of the other way around!

5-POCKET KNIT JEANS

Perfect for the kids who hate denim. These soft, stretchy favorites feel like leggings, but look and act like skinny jeans. Best of both worlds.

FOIL STAR TULLE SKIRT

Twinkly tulle with a soft jersey lining, this skirt makes every day feel like a dress-up day.

Covered in stars and threaded with a “unicorn” mane? Yes, please.

Retired Miamians aren’t the only ones who gets to rock this look. Lined in fleece, and decked out with accents, there’s no better way for kids to make a statement while staying comfy.

3D SHARK TEE

How cool is this? 3D glasses come with this tee, making the shark look so real you can practically hear the “duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh” in the background. This ain’t no baby shark.
